Harold and the blue eggs

Barbara Muir © 2013Our Easter celebrations involve getting our family together
for a great big feast. That is the only way to describe it.
Steven (my husband) makes the best roast turkey ever. This
year Christopher our son, made wonderful broccoli, and our
son Sam made delicious roast potatoes and roast peppers.
Steven made pumpkin pie, and we had that with ice cream.
Add to that picture many, many chocolate eggs, and baskets,
and toys and champagne for the adults -- and you have a party.
That is our family, and I am proud of us. What did I make? I
set the table, helped the "bunny" design and fill the baskets,
helped stuff the turkey, and did the odd thing here and there.
It was a beautiful day in every way. I love my family.
Wishing you great celebrations with your family.
(I put Harold, the bunny rabbit on my blog every year
since I painted her (yes a she), and think
happily of the time a university boyfriend, not
knowing how innocent I was, gave me
a marijuana plant for a present.
Harold, my bunny, ate the plant,
plus a massive chunk of the sheets and blanket in
my rental room! The young married
couple I was rooming with was not impressed.
Neither was I. I had to pay for new sheets and
a blanket. But the whole story makes me laugh
every year when I think of Harold).
